Located 314km from Colombo, Arugam Bay is an internationally acclaimed hot spot for surfing. The very first international surfing competition was held by the International Surfing Association (ISA) in the summer of 2004 at Arugam Bay. The surfing season in Arugam Bay begins in April and ends in October. It’s not just the surfing, but the coral reefs, the abundance of tropical fish and the lovely sceneries of mangroves, jungles, lagoons, rivers, rice fields and sand dunes make Arugam Bay a sight to behold.
